I am painting like crazy to prepare for "Colorado Pathways," my upcoming July show at Around the Corner Art Gallery in Montrose, Colorado. Here is a recent painting reminiscent of our adobe landscape from a paint out that Dan Deuter and his wife, Ellie, so kindly hosted. This scene is an 18x14 original oil painting on panel. I'm using the palette knife more frequently these days. The painting knife creates a luscious, thick paint surface that you can carve and create textures on. The drawback is that the thick paint dries ever so slowly which gets concerning when you need to wait for the painting to dry before adding more effects.
